Here she is!


Allow me to introduce the newest member of our family. This is “Fidgit,” a two-year-old Welsh Pembroke corgi. (The breeder’s name, not ours. Oh and she also has one of those long official kennel names, but we’ll never use that.)

Our beloved longhaired dachshund, Geneva, died in March, and the house was just too quiet without the pitter patter of little doggie feet.

You might notice that Fidgit is a little damp. That’s because she is a great lover of the water. This was the first time she’d ever been on a beach, and she ran right in!

DSCN0341We asked the breeder about this, and after she stopped laughing, she said that Fidgit’s grandmother also loves the water.


She is also fond of rolling on the legs of dead spider crabs.


Running through the waves is another favorite activity. We love to watch her do this. It’s so interesting that she would have this affinity for the beach and salt water (and crab legs) never having been to the shore until now. Better late than never!


So far, she’s fitting right in to our life. Geneva is irreplaceable, but it feels wonderful to have a joyful canine presence in the house again.

    You can never replace a lost pet, you can only fill in the quite, empty space with another love. My sincere sympathy on your loss and congratulations on your new love. luvs

      That is so true about filling the empty space with love. I also believe that life is too short to be sad all the time. I still miss Geneva, but my heart is mending.
